Hi, I have some images stored in the database and am attempting to build a img link to them. I would prefer to use a syntax that doesn't restrict me to a hard coded path, something like this: <%= image_tag(url_for(:controller => 'member_pics', :action => 'show', :id => member_pic.id), :alt => member_pic.member.full_name, :size => "150x150") %> However rails appends a .png automatically to my path so that the functional path "/member_pics/show/4" becomes the disfunctional path "/member_pics/show/4.png". Is there a way to disable the magic in this case (rails 0.13.1)? I have worked around the issue for now by building up the img tag myself ... <img src="<%= url_for :controller => 'member_pics', :action => 'show', :id => member_pic.id %>" alt="<%= member_pic.member.full_name %>" height="150" width="150"> Thanks, Fraser

Yeah, an :add_suffix=>false or something would be nice. I may run into this problem myself, and would probably use .sub(/\..*$/,'') to remove the suffix. csn
